O’Shea future lies with Quins

HARLEQUINS director of rugby Conor O’Shea, who has masterminded the most illustrious period the club has enjoyed in the professional era, has extended his contract until 2016.

Since the 43-year-old’s arrival at Twickenham Stoop in 2010 Quins have won four trophies, including the Premiership title in 2012.

O’Shea said: “I am very privileged to be asked to continue as director of rugby.

“We are ambitious to ensure that what we are building is a lasting legacy, that we play rugby in a style our supporters enjoy and it is true to the tradition of this club.”

Head coach John Kingston and skills coach Collin Osborne have also extended their respective contracts for the same period.
